EVERY UK NUMBER ONE SONG: ‘Strangers in the Night’ – Frank Sinatra

What was the number one song in the UK on 2nd June 1966?

Ole Blue Eyes is back with Strangers in the Night, which got to number one for 3 weeks.

Aah, could this be one of the most romantic songs ever recorded? Certainly with its charming lyrics, beautifully flowing orchestral arrangement and Frank’s smooth vocals, it is strong competition for the title indeed. This track understandably won an abundance of Grammys and reached number one both here and in the US.

Lyrics

Strangers in the night
Exchanging glances
Wondering in the night
What were the chances
We’d be sharing love
Before the night was through?
Something in your eyes
Was so inviting
Something in your smile
Was so exciting
Something in my heart told me I must have you
Strangers in the night, two lonely people
We were strangers in the night
Up to the moment when we said our first hello
Little did we know
Love was just a glance away, a warm embracing dance away
And ever since that night
We’ve been together
Lovers at first sight
In love forever
It turned out so right
For strangers in the night
Love was just a glance away, a warm embracing dance away
Ever since that night
We’ve been together
Lovers at first sight
In love forever
It turned out so right
For strangers in the night
Doo-bee-doo-bee-doo
Doo-doo-dee-dah, dah-dah-dah-dah-dah
